PostSubject: A Shot in the Dark...   Fri Feb 29, 2008 4:09 am

Well, my Japanese is beyond horrible))))
But since we have no Japanese mod here yet, I will share what I know:

Japanese has three writing systems: katakana, hiragana and kanji. Katakana is used for foreign words and names, onomatopoeia (sound-words), scientific words, and probably other stuff. Hiragana is used for grammatical particles, and words that have no kanji or the kanji is a difficult character/s. Kanji is the use of Chinese characters, and is used for names, nouns and stems of verbs and adjectives.

Romanji is the transliteration of Japanese words into Latin letters.

Also! Japanese is not a tonal language, so it is not necessary to put stress on certain words, as it is in Chinese or Korean. All the syllibles are even.

Hello, good day - konnichiwa - こんにちは
Goodbye - sayonara - さよなら
Mother - okasan
Father - otosan
I, me - watashi - 私 <--this is kanji
Yes - hai - はい (NOTE: You can also use "ee," in informal situations)
No - iie - いいえ
Hello (over the phone) - moshi moshi
friend - tomodachi - 友達 <--more kanji! ^-^
